PD day camps are a great opportunity for children to visit the OHS, learn about animal welfare and have fun while interacting with animals. Each camp offers a unique opportunity to learn and explore a variety of animal welfare topics.

OHS PD day camps aim to develop your child’s knowledge of animal welfare through a variety of interactive and educational activities, which may include:

  • Humane education presentations
  • Guided tour of the Shirley Kearns Memorial Adoption Centre
  • Cat Gallery viewings
  • OHS-themed games
  • Small animal circles
  • Meet-and-Greet time with a volunteer dog
  • Guest speakers
  • Animal enrichment crafts

All of our activities are geared towards teaching campers about animal care, handling and welfare. We try to have at least three 20-minute animal interactions every day, but that can sometimes vary depending on animal availability and behaviour. Our top priority is the well-being and safety of both the campers and our animals. We provide a fun, inclusive and safe learning environment for our campers, and one that is free of undue stress on the animals.
